    Hey! I'm looking to find some nice, bright, fun casual shoes for summer.

    I really like the look of this pair of Swear-London shoes.

    Does anyone have any ideas of brands or specific shoes I could check out in a similar style?
    Thanks!

    Just thought I'd top this once to see if anyone would care to share their thoughts.

    I like seersucker as much as the next guy (probably more) but not on shoes.

    Get some white bucks.

    I guess I'm looking for something more casual; preferably without a heel.

    I like the look of these.

    This site however (Milanoo) is horrible from what I've heard. They are selling "these" shoes for $20. They are horrible quality, I already know.

    I'd like something exactly like these, but made a little bit better!

    Go to urban outfitters and get their pimsolls for like 7 dollars. They come in lots of colors. They dont really need to be terribly great quality, as they are easy to replace.

    Am a fan of Fin's

    www.finsforhim.com

    Bright, summery colors, extremely comfortable. Not cheap though.

    I'm also looking for some summer shoes. The ones I have are all on the darker side. I'm not looking for sneakers though. Tan bucks would be nice. Any others?

    I have also found these shoes made by Vans. [​IMG] They are the Vans OTW Pritchard. Look pretty nice. As far as summery goes, I'm kind of in-between the grey or blue. I wish they were both a little lighter in color, but oh well. Thoughts?

    I just thought I'd let everyone know I settled on these shoes.

    I had no idea Sperry made a shoe like this!
    The shoe name is the Boat Oxford Lace-Up.

    top siders have a new model don't know the name but they are some kind of "unstructured/unlined" oxford with a white sailing type sole. they come in oil leather, blue canvas and a sort of cream color. they are actually quite nice.
    by the way you can get them for 80-90 bucks.

    I walked into a Spring store the other day (or is it "Call It Spring" now? They seem to have changed their name...) and they had a couple different styles of boat(-ish) shoes that I'm looking for an excuse to buy. Came in around $50 if I recall, and they had some interesting colours and designs. Check their website under "moccasins" and see if there's something you like.
